    More GOOD news from Fuji

    I've not seen this mentioned elsewhere (forgive me if it has been) but Fuji are launching a new Provia as well as the much vaunted return of Velvia 50.
    See http://www.fujifilm.co.uk/profession...ws/2007.02.htm for details.

    Hmm- Wonder if she'd notice if I bought that :)

    Bad news in the sheep's clothing, perhaps? That says that the more saturated Provia 400X, which I think is already available in some markets, will replace the more neutral 400F, which I happen to like just fine thank you.

    Have you tried Astia ? It makes provia look a bit like 'real' velvia.

    Yes, I quite like Astia, but it's a 100 speed film, and sometimes I need a 400 speed film. 400F is good stuff.

    Dear David,

    On a related point, I always loathed the original Velvia 50 because it replaced my all-time favourite colour film, RF/RFP.

    Cheers,

    R.

    Yes, I absolutely LOVED the old Fujichrome 50. It lured me away from Kodachrome which I had been using exclusively in those days. (Now I'm back to Kodachrome64 while it lasts--full circle.)

    Funny as I still have some rolls of 50D and 100D film. I haven't tried them lately to see if they are still good or not. I'd be interested to see if anything has changed with the new version of Velvia 50.

    Old news although its about time 400x was mentioned on the UK site, Provia 400x sounds awesome, I cant wait to try it in what I think film has the biggest advantage over digital and that is tiny pocket cameras, I might try it in my Stylus Epic (re dX coded to 800) next time I am in London, as well as maybe the new Portra films, see if the bar really has been raised.

    Fuji really seems like a company that listens to their customers (like another one we know, Ilford)

    There has been another example recently: Fuji Single 8mm film.

    A few months ago it was announced that they would be discontinuing the production of R25N (daylight reversal) and RT200N (tungsten reversal) and the processing service.

    In January they announce that due to the feedback they will not be discontinuing the production of the film or shutting the lab, but will be moderninsing the lab and getting the main engineer in the production of the film to train up younger apprentices in its manufacture, before he retires.

    Knew there was a good reason I always tried to buy Ilford for Black and White and Fuji for color
    It sounds good to me, I've only recently even set foot into the real of slide film, so I'm interested to what the new Velvia 50 (I managed to come across a few rolls) will be like as well as this film.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.
